Hijacking AD / 3rd party script

Postby andyhi » Mon Dec 31, 2018 10:31 pm

Just a notice that the site is force redistributing a 3rd party script/hi jack AD that forces redirection to ogifts.ooo advertizing an amazon gift card/Iphone X/Samsung Galaxy.

When you try to close the popup, thetvdb.com page closes as well. This is OBVIOUSLY a MALWARE injection attempt.

I was able to duplicate the attempted hijack multiple times using the following steps:
1.) Access thetvdb.com via safari on IOS 12.1.1 (latest rev).
2.) Search for TV series Dr Oakley Yukon Vet.
3.) Select All Seasons link.
4.) Hijacked ad/popup appears.

I've had something similar with "Envon Security" hijacking my session and telling me my PC is insecure. It gives a dialog box to initiate a system scan. Closing the tab closes thetvdb.com tab.

Had this twice now, while looking at Veronica Mars pages.
